Diaper rash!

Bek - posted on 02/08/2010 ( 1 mom has responded )




My little girl is almost 20 months old. She has suffered with constipation on and off. I tried putting her on the toilet when she starts pushing. It really hepled her poop easier. She has pooped in the toliet around six times. Well she began watching the video Elmo's Potty Time. Now anytime she gets that feeling she begins pushing really hard.

The problem is that she is pushing too often. Now she has poop in bottom crack every time I change her diaperwhich has resulted in a severe diaper rash. I have tried diaper rash ointment, hours without a diaper, and corn starch. She is finally starting to get better.

Should I try to help her forget about potty training or continue working with her on it?

Let her take the lead. Leave a potty availible to her but stop the videos and don't bring it up. She may just be thinking about it too much. All kids do it when they're ready.
